Title:


    A Fluid-Suspension, Electromagnetically Driven Eye with Video Capability for Animatronic Applications

Presenter(s):


Entry Number: 03


Description:


    We have prototyped a compact, fluid-suspension, electromagnetically-rotated animatronic eye. The Eye has no external moving parts, features low operating power, a range of motion and saccade speeds that can exceed that of the human eye, and an absence of frictional wear points. It supports a rear, stationary, video camera. In a special application, the eye can be separated into a hermetically sealable portion that might be used as a human eye prosthesis along with an extra-cranially-mounted magnetic drive.
